Wound Management Under Magnification
It is a daily practice for general practitioners to manage different types of intra oral wound. Management of surgical wound should begin with a good pre-operative assessment, gentle intra-operative soft tissue handling, while closure by suturing is by far the most commonly used technique. With the enhanced vision provided by the operating microscope, surgery can be done by minimal invasive approach, closure of those small flaps by finer sutures may reduce post-operative discomfort and promote better healing response, especially in thin biotype cases.
It is not uncommon for patients to present with different types of wound that are more difficult to manage. Traumatic injuries from sport activities or accidents often result in wounds with laceration, sometimes complicated with embedded foreign bodies or patient’s own fractured tooth structures. The cleaning up of these wounds is important for uncomplicated healing, that is much easier to be accomplished with high magnification. The subsequent wound closure with fine suture will minimize scar formation in esthetically important areas.
In this presentation, the basic principles of suturing, the characteristics of different suture materials as well as the use of fine suture under the operating microscope will be discussed.
- Basic suture techniques
- The advantages of fine sutures in wound management
- Hands-on experience of suturing under operating microscope
